ClearIM is available as a beta test platform now. The company is encouraging people to sign up as early adopters to benefit from discounts to additions to the service as XMPP enabled platforms becomes popular during 2009-2010 and businesses start to consume XMPP feeds via cloud based services.

"Cleartext is well placed to deliver cloud based XMPP services through its depth of knowledge in messaging hosting and security and XMPP experience through prior relationships with Jabber Inc and Jive Software, both leading XMPP vendors of enterprise based solutions".

First established in 1999 to develop secure IM solutions Cleartext moved into managed services in 2005. ClearEmail a professional email hosting service was launched in 2006 and ClearEmail MX Managed Email Security in 2007. The company launched ClearEmail EDM in February 2008 and has just launched ClearIM.
